Mavs in Town Minus Dirk

The Dallas Mavericks (11-10) will be in town Wednesday night to do battle with the Boston Celtics (11-9) in what will be Jason Terry's first match up against his ex team. Terry spent eight seasons in Dallas and was a key member off the bench in Dallas' 2011 championship run. Now in a starting roll wearing green, Terry has been putting together a nice season for Boston. Dallas has been without their star Dirk Nowitzki (knee) for the season so far, but are still managing to have a solid start to the year. Free agent signing O.J. Mayo has stepped into the lead roll for the Mavericks very well averaging 20.8 PPG, 4 RPG, and 3.5 APG. Mayo needed a change in scenery after things went down hill for him in Memphis. Originally drafted to be a cornerstone of the Grizzlies franchise, Mayo turned into a roll player on the bench when ex Celtic Tony Allen stole his job. Dallas had a major overhaul this off season also adding free agents Chris Kaman, Darren Collison, and Elton Brand. Both teams come into tonight's game off of wins and will look to keep the momentum rolling at the Garden at 8 P.M. in front of a National stage on ESPN.
